MLS Laser Therapy Q&A

What is MLS laser therapy?

Multiwave locked system (MLS) laser therapy is an innovative treatment that’s FDA-cleared for reducing pain, inflammation, and swelling.

People who have sports injuries, such as sprains and strains, can also find relief with MLS laser therapy.

How does MLS laser therapy work?

MLS laser therapy delivers precise wavelengths of light energy to the painful area of your foot or ankle. The light energy enters damaged cells, stimulating your body’s healing process and promoting blood flow. The result is less pain, reduced inflammation, and a faster recovery than your body could achieve on its own.

What should I expect from MLS laser therapy?

MLS laser therapy is a painless treatment that usually only takes about 10 minutes per session. The number of sessions you need depends on the type and severity of your condition, but most people get 6-12 treatments. The team at New Age Foot & Ankle Surgery develops an individualized treatment plan for you.

It’s important to follow the recommended treatment schedule, even if you notice an improvement in your pain and symptoms after only one or a few sessions. Failing to receive the full treatment schedule may cause your symptoms to recur.

What are the benefits of MLS laser therapy?

MLS laser therapy is a drug-free, non-invasive treatment, which means there are no adverse side effects. If you experience ongoing foot pain and want to reduce your use of pain medications or avoid surgery, MLS laser therapy may be the solution.

Other advantages of MLS laser therapy include:

  • Painless treatment
  • Rapid healing of injuries
